To root your Xperia ZR,follow the instruction on below urls...
- Sehrahxx and TeamAndy - Wupsy..sorry about that Sara pleasure to meet ya.So let me tell you how to root your phone the easiest way - download the Rar file from here : http://d-h.st/Kmm (big thanks to DoomLord for it)and extract it in 1 folder.Before proceeding you need ADB drivers for you phone so follow these steps to get them installed - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2386260 (remember maybe windows 7 installed them automaticaly so give it a try without this first)
after installing them go to the first folder that u extracted the root files and start the file - Runme_win.Follow the steps and you are done (: .After that install Titanium Backup from Playstore and you are done (: remember after uninstalling some apps the phone reboots but its normal.(Caution - this is only for 4.1.2 v.of android. and careful with what you are uninstalling ^^)Cheerz

My name is Sara, and my nickname is Sehrah. So how do you root the phone? Can you root it within the system? I dont know much about these things, I just want to know this ahead of time, before I get my phone. There are pre-installed apps that I would definitely get rid of, such as Facebook (since I dont use it). This way, I can control the internal memory in the way I want to use it.
Lawren - The screen have a stock protector so if it scrathes u can remove it every time and change it with other one (so yes protectors easly scrathes).The screen on the ZR is Dragontrail like the Z so its hard to get scratched or shatter. (:
Invernes - Thanks bro i will have that in mind! (:
Sehrahxx - Thanks to you too bro im glad to help.Rooting your phone allows you to uninstall stock apps that you don't want like Xperia link,walkman,track ID and stuff(basicly it gives you full control of the phone)
For the Micro SD cards many ppl use 64GB micro sd HC cards and they dont have problems.But they are reporting ones with KINGSTON models so better don't risk with this brand.A good one is Sandisc.
raju, 05 Aug 2013Dont worry I wil go nd kick that sony guy:))) thk u
Waiting for the phone delivery, we will keep you guys posted about my view on the phone when it arrives.
lawren, 05 Aug 2013how's the screen? it's not gorilla glass and i heard it scratches easily? is this true?mate, in case you didn't know, the scratch resistant glass is mostly a bullshit as any tougher material touching the screen, will scratch it, unless it has a diamond screen.
Ofc, corning gorilla 3 has enhanced ressistance over the 2 version but still vulnerable to scratches even tho they might be less visible.
So, any metal touching and rubbing the surface glass of dragon trail, goriila 2 or 3, will scratch it.It is simple physics mechanics.
Regardless if it is gorilla 2 or 3, your metal keys will scratch the screen if in the pocket and on the move.
Therefore, for any phone you buy, must use a screen protector and a case.Preferably a TPU GEL one as it doesn't atract dust and absorbs shocks very well.

Even beats Xperia Z if you ask me, as the full HD is barely noticeable as a difference.
I rarely make such statements but after these 2 weeks of intensive use, I strongly reccommend it to anyone that had doubts about it.
You will fall in love with it from the momment you touch the phone.

is it ok to use 32GB microSD card?
I mean, will it disturb the phone performance if we use the maximum amount of microSD capacity the phone can handle?.. (though we only use 10-20GB for example)
thanks for the answer~
saint, 05 Aug 2013 does this phone support 64gB card prior to its latest update?yes you can use 64 gb memory card. you have to format your card from your mobile for the first time.

Time to write my opinion review for this great phone ! Have it for 3rd day now and its just awesome!!!
1. - Battery - GREAT! first charge cycle it lasted me almost 20 hours of heavyyy usage! (everyone knows what's happening when you buy a new phone :)).The past 2 days it lasted me for a day and 5-6 hours.Im satisfied with it.It charges fast from 0-100% for 2 hours or less.
1. - Camera - Awesome for a dayshots,but in lowlight have abit noise and its abit greeny (heard its fixed in 4.2 update still don't have it so i don't know for sure.)For the IP58 Tried it under the watersink - no problems at all :) - Im too afraid to get it in to the sea but i will some shiny day and try it out. (comments about the flaps and water penetrating in battery aren't true..its secured from everywhere you need to close them well.)
3. - Sound - Great sound! Its loud with the options on (Clear phase and XLOUD) i don't know why GSMArena didn't mentioned that ZR have XLOUD,but it does.Its clear when listening music and recieving calls.
4. - Display - Nothing to talk about..great display with the BRAVIA Engine 2.
5.- Specs - Again the same..Quad on 1.5 and 2 gigs of ram makes the ZR fly..browsing,listenting music,some background programs on.Flies like a bird.(my prev.phone was X8 so..maybe others won't see the difference like i did :D).I think in base thats the most important.If anyone have questions your welcome to ask me.Have the phone rooted already (:
Deff.this is a phone that worth the money! Thank you SONY!
